After months of silence, Oritsefemi’s ex-manager, Adepitan ‘Danku’ Yusuf, has finally reacted to the theft allegations levelled against him by Oritsefemi.
In a recent interview with The Sun, Danku said:
“Oritsefemi is an artiste that I took from nowhere and made somebody. I took him from Ajegunle and brought him to Ikeja.
“I took him to the Island and I took him to Lekki as well. I took him to D’banj, I took him to Davido and some A-list artistes he never believed he could work with. It is unfortunate that after I took him to Abuja to sign a record deal with my business partner, Mr. Allen of Avatar, he came up with this strange behaviour trying to disorganise the plans I had for him. .
“I guess he was overwhelmed by the prospects and believed that he had finally arrived because he never believed he could make it to the level I took him to. I did the promotion of Double Wahala from scratch. I sponsored the promotion because he had nothing. .
“For three months I promoted that song with my own money. It is unfortunate that he came up with those allegations against me just to promote his music and ridicule me. He said I took his Range Rover and stole his N58m for endorsement he got from a brand. I was surprised because I don’t know where he got the endorsement from.
“The Range Rover he is talking about he crashed by himself when he was coming from an event I was not aware of on December 6, 2014. He is going around parading himself as the owner of MSN Gang, my company, which I registered myself. I have everything documented with my lawyers but I will address the press very soon extensively and will expose his lies.”
Danko reveals that the reason he ever agreed to work with Oritsefemi initially was because of the pressure he was piling on him:
“We started working in 2013. I used to give him shows and events. At a point he was always calling me for money so I said ‘let me do something for him.’ So from Ajegunle, I picked him up.”.
